Blackburn Rovers have rubbished reports they are considering an audacious big for AC Milan star Ronaldinho.
The Brazil international, 30, has fallen out of favour at the San Siro and has been linked with a move away from the Italian giants in either January or the summer.
Rovers’ new owners, Venky’s, claimed on both their Facebook and Twitter accounts that they had offered Ronaldinho a two-year deal, and the player’s agent has also revealed he has been contacted by the Ewood Park outfit.
But club director Venkatesh Rao told the Lancashire Telegraph: “That is not true. There is no interest at all, they are just rumours.
“We are still finalising possible signings but hopefully we can come out into the press and make things clearer in a week. Discussions are still going on and meetings are going on.
“Money is not the criteria at all though, we do not mind about the money. It is about getting the right players for Blackburn Rovers and we have enough money to do that.
“That is not a problem. We want to bring quality to Blackburn Rovers.”
